The new logo, codenamed "Pussy" was silently launched at the E-mart supermarket in Kuching.

On a serious note, there's a lot of updates I want to blog about but my lifestyle right now isn't giving me a lot of time to commit to this blog. Should I...retire from blogging then? :(

How Facebook ruined one man's happiness.

Before it happened, he was always on Facebook, uploading his latest photographic works and showing us his creativity with his DSLR. Indirectly he also introduced us men to the wonderful beauty of female models he shot; we even got to know their names all thanks to the tagging system of Facebook.

And then, he created a contest. A contest that would changed his life.

The contest was simple; all you needed to do was to send him a photo of yourself, which will be uploaded to Facebook, and people will vote for you by simply clicking the 'Like' button. The prize was studio photographs of yourself, taken none other than the man himself.

It was meant to be a way for the friends and fans of his to vote the contestant that was the most photogenic, or simply to support the contestant he or she knew. It was meant to dig out the potential models for photographers to take for their creative shoots.

It was meant to be harmless fun.

But things took turn for the worst, when some contestants decided to abuse the tagging system of Facebook and literally spam anyone and everyone they could...all in the name of begging them to 'Like' them and score voting points.

"Congratulations, Mr. Bean! You look like shite but because you tag everyone including Kim Jong Il, squeezed your balls as you beg your mother to open a Facebook account just to vote for you and even paid some kids to click 'Like' on your photo, you have qualified to the next round and defeated the likes of Brad Pitt, Cristiano Ronaldo and Clouded Pawn!"

It was a shameless cheat.

And then like wildfire, the 'victims' of being tagged by the cheating contestants got annoyed. Really annoyed.

As a result of such annoyance, someone created a Facebook fan group and called it "the man's contest is stupid".

Most people who joined this group were complaining about how he or she had so many tag notifications by contestants they don't know and they don't like. But upon further reading, it was more than just complains; this group took the opportunity to really bitch about him:

"He's a homosexual and he is washing his eyes with the attractive guys"

"He's not handsome enough that's why he started this whole contest"

"Sending your photos to him is like sending your virgin body to him, girls!"

"He FAILED in everything!!!! ROFL!!!!"

Those are some of the actual comments on the page.

And as more and more "haters" joined this group, you could tell the maturity of the group; comments such as "I'm the 1022nd fan! WOW!" and "LOLs!" was quite a clear indication of their mentality really.

What they don't realized though is how nasty they were to this man. Because some moronic contestant(s) decided to tag people, he gets the stick? Because your email account was flooded with notifications you can call this man whatever you want? Because you envy him you want to take him down?

Maybe some do really hate him. Some said he was such a big liar, a hypocrite, a pervert. But even if he could be all of the above, what gives these people the right to insult him and ruin some bit of his reputation in such a public site like Facebook?

And now thanks to the group, he would like to stop using Facebook for the time being. A victory to the bastard who created the group, and misery to the man who only wanted to have fun.

Your thoughts? I might continue writing but I would like to read your point of views first.
